National Read Across America Day 2016

by Jenny Hansen

Tomorrow is National Read Across America Day, also known as Dr. Seuss Day. Anyone who has read my early Undie Chronicles knows I adore Dr. Seuss. Do y’all remember “Man-Style Goes to the Zoo?”

There’s also…

Needless to say, Dr. Seuss hits high on my laugh-o-meter and he was a GENIUS. Who else in the world has gotten more kids to read?


And who else got this much wisdom across in such accessible language?

Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.

Today you are you, That is truer than true. There is no one alive Who is youer than you. — Dr. Seuss (@TheDrSeussQuote) June 15, 2015


The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

The National Education Association is sponsoring reading events across America this week, and there are exceptionally cool related products. I knew y’all would want to know about them. Here’s their Facebook page.

RedBubble has this Read Across America t-shirt:

Read Across America


A recipe for Green Eggs and Ham.


AND there are several events going on in cities around the U.S.

There’s a Read Across America Tour – today they’re in Phoenix, tomorrow San Diego (Dr. Seuss’ home town!), then Denver and finally, the Children’s Museum in Atlanta. I hope you check out Thing 1 and Thing 2 at your local tour stop. Also, if you live in the Show Me State (Missouri), there’s the Cat Tracks Tour.

Do you read to your children? What is your favorite Dr. Seuss book, movie or quote? Continue the discussion at the #SocialIn hashtag on Twitter or SocialInDC on Facebook!
